If you are invested in keeping your family’s smiles healthy and strong, we encourage you to promote proper oral care, such as daily brushing and flossing, in your home. We also invite you to consider bringing your family to Logan Family Dental to receive dental sealants. Dental sealants can protect your family’s mouths from tooth decay, and are particularly helpful for children.

Tooth enamel is the outer layer that protects your teeth, and adding dental sealants strengthens your smile because it adds a second protective layer to the chewing surfaces of the back teeth. If you have children between the ages of six to twelve who have healthy but new permanent molars, we encourage you to bring them to the dentist’s office to receive dental sealants. As an adult, you can also receive dental sealants if your teeth are healthy and currently free of cavities.

It is important that you and your family practice good oral care before and after we apply dental sealants so that your teeth and the sealants remain in good condition. Your back teeth tend to accumulate food and bacteria and are harder to clean, so they are often more at risk of tooth decay. However, your dental sealants can last up to a decade with the right care.

We invite you to contact Logan Family Dental at 740-380-1333 today if you are considering receiving dental sealants in Logan, Ohio, and are curious about the nature and benefits of sealants. Dr. Barrie Suzanne Zweier and our team are eager to help you and your family enjoy healthy smiles!
